Register for the webinar.

The Federal Historic Tax Credit has become an important incentive for the preservation and rehabilitation of commercial and rental residential historic buildings. It is one of the federal government’s most successful and cost-effective community revitalization programs. The results of the program are evident throughout the country, where vacant and underused buildings have been returned to productive use.

In this 90 minute webinar we will review the basics of the Federal Historic Tax Credit including:

  • What is the tax credit?
  • What buildings qualify for the credit?
  • What expenditures qualify for the credit?
  • What is a certified rehabilitation?
  • What is the application process?
